Summer STEM Options
When we provide interdisciplinary, seamless, integrated and project-based learning experiences—students learn not only the content and skills from each discipline, but are able to see the connections and applications which are not apparent, or learned, when students receive a fragmented curriculum. Learning occurs at much higher levels when the curriculum is interdisciplinary and project-based.
